TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay safety Cody Grimm has an injured right knee and likely will be replaced in the lineup by backup Corey Lynch.
Coach Raheem Morris said Monday that the team was awaiting results of tests and would not speculate on how long the second-year pro will be sidelined.
Although Morris says Lynch will compete in practice with Larry Asante to be Grimm’s replacement, the sixth-year pro played most of the second half of Sunday’s 16-13 victory over Atlanta and started five games in Grimm’s absence last season.
Grimm was hurt while he and linebacker Geno Hayes were stopping Atlanta’s Michael Turner for a 1-yard gain. Hayes suffered a concussion on the play and will undergo a NFL-mandated battery of tests to help determine his status for next Monday night against Indianapolis.
